The Education Ministry has approved the use of a newly-designed script to facilitate reading and writing. The so-called Comenia Script is being presented as an alternate to the traditional script where letters must be slanted to the right, perfectly formed and linked up. The simpler Comenia Script, created by a graphic artist, has already been tested in several schools and has won wide approval both from teachers and students. The new handwriting also offers easier versions as regards capital letters, with fewer loops and twirls. The new script was tailored to those used in Great Britain, the US and Scandinavia.
